Yemen rebels say army fired rockets at protesters

SANAA - Shi'ite Muslim rebels in northern Yemen said the military fired rockets at their anti-government protests on Friday and killed two, as protests spread and intensify across the impoverished Arab Nation.
Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, a US ally against a resurgent wing of al-Qaida, is struggling to quell daily protests that have swept across the country demanding he step down after 32 years ruling Yemen.
"During a peaceful protest this Friday morning ... demanding the fall of the regime, an end to corruption and political change, a military site fired rockets at a group of protesters and hit dozens of people," a statement from the rebels said.
